HISTORICAL SITE VISIT
The students of History visited Thripunithura Hill palace on 22/02/2018. History allows the students to feel like they were part of this vast chain of humanity. They connect us to other cultures. By seeing places from the past in other areas, I am able to relate to those people. The students could see similarities between their culture and archeology. Both of which help the students to feel a deeper understanding of Kerala History. 42 students participated in the site visit. Future generations are in no way guaranteed to experience these places as they are. Responsible travel can provide incentives to save them, or at least their memory.

An international webinar on Gender studies
The webinar was conducted on 15-02-2021. It was led by Fr. Gilson Payyapilly. He spoke about the Gender studies form part of a significant shift into interdisciplinarity in academic fields more widely, which is reflected in the issue-based calls of funding bodies, special editions of journals and the growth of interdisciplinary research fields. Gender studies are an integral part of this interdisciplinary movement that offers theoretical and methodological advantages in understanding multiply constituted social worlds and addressing pressing global problems, such as the dynamics of migration, uneven global power geometries and climate change. Not only are most of the big issues in the contemporary world underpinned by social divisions including those based on sex and gender, but also the issues addressed by sexual politics are often a key motor of activism and change. Gender studies are distinctive in their engagement with interdisciplinarity, which have developed though a synergy between thought and activism.
